Description

Rare Select Proof 1857 Seated Dollar

1857 $1 PR63 PCGS. The 1857 proof Seated dollars were made in the last year before the Mint started publicly marketing proof sets to collectors rather than the merely well-connected. The Guide Book gives no mintage figure, but this is undoubtedly a very rare issue. PCGS' CoinFacts offers 50 pieces as a mintage, and Bowers estimates 50 to 100 pieces. In any case, the present Select proof is one of 14 such at PCGS, with 10 in 64 and a single 65 the finest at that service (5/12). CoinFacts estimates that 40 survive in all grades, which would imply an original mintage larger than 50, in all probability. Generous luster greets the viewer of this piece, with greenish-gold patina on surfaces that may be precluded from an even finer grade by the remnants of a fingerprint in the right obverse field. There are no singular signs of contact, although the strike is soft on the eagle's upper left (facing) wing and sharp otherwise.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252B, PCGS# 7000)
